Natrina Roper, intern program associate for the William J. Clinton Foundation, talked about how to be a great intern and how an organization benefits from interns, at the second annual Wagner Internship Initiative on April 16, held at Scholastic Inc. in Manhattan.
- A great intern is “low maintenance” and willing to do any task with pleasure.
- A great intern takes advantage of all opportunities to speak with staff and learn more.
- A great intern has to be kicked out of the office at the end of the day.
- A great intern brings freshness, youth, and energy to the organization.
“Because they come in so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, it reminds us as staff members why we are there and why the work we do is important,” Roper concluded.
